Plant Therapy is a People First Company. We want to make sure that you love our products and we want to know when you don’t. We seriously consider your input, comments, and concerns for each of our products. When something can be improved on, that’s what we strive to do! And that is exactly how one of our newest blends, Sleep Tight, sprang into existence.
If you’ve been part of our PT family for a while now, or even if you just started looking into what we offer, you may notice something: we have a lot of sleep blends. Originally, there was Sleep Aid, Sweet Slumber, Sweet Dreams, and Nighty Night, not to mention tons of single oils and DIY recipes galore to help you get all the deep, quality sleep you deserve.
We all know that sleep is super important, but with four different sleep specific blends, why in the world did we decide to add another one? Because we listened to you, that’s why! Let me explain…
Before introducing Sleep Tight, the only non-KidSafe sleep blend we offered was Sleep Aid. Sleep Aid contains a very powerful essential oil called Valerian Root. Not only is Valerian Root an incredibly capable aid in sleeping, but it also has an incredibly poignant smell. And not everyone was into it, to say the least.
So before we made a solid plan to create a new sleep set, we knew we had to create a sleeping blend that had a more pleasant aroma that everyone could get on board with. That’s when our in-house experts got busy with a brand new, sweet and comforting blend—without Valerian Root.
So how can you use Sleep Tight in your life? Here are four easy ways to get the most out of this new bedtime buddy:
Time to bring out the diffuser! Diffusing in your bedroom about a half hour before going to sleep is a great way to enjoy all of the relaxing benefits this blend has to offer. And can it get any easier? The oils are already perfectly blended for you, so all you have to do is add a few drops into your diffuser of choice, turn it on, and leave. Just remember to follow the directions of your specific diffuser to get the best and safest results.
Who doesn’t love a warm, relaxing bath at the end of the day? Believe it or not, having a luxurious bath doesn’t take an arsenal of expensive products. At its most basic level, all you really need is a bit of body wash (unscented preferably) and some Sleep Tight. For one tablespoon of body wash, add 9 drops of Sleep Tight. Of course, you can always go above and beyond by adding half a cup of Epsom or Himalayan salt as well.
If you haven’t tried using a blend or single oil topically before bed, you’re missing out. Blending Sleep Tight with your favorite carrier oil, lotion, or cream is a great way to enjoy its aroma that will help lull you into a peaceful sleep. Plus, it’s a great excuse to give yourself a leg and foot rub in bed. But be careful—when you try this once, you may want to do it forever! Sleep Tight has a 2-3% dilution recommendation, so please keep that in mind during your blending.
Crunched for time? Don’t want to blend anything together or diffuse? If you have a cotton ball, then you’re in luck! One of the best, quickest, easiest, and most cost-effective ways to use Sleep Tight is to add a couple of drops to a cotton ball and place it near your pillow. That’s it! You’ll be able to fall asleep enjoying the peaceful scent using this passive diffusion technique.
